The following descriptions are from Wikipedia.   If you wanted to have the most “say” and “influence” in your HOA, which would you want to use for Voting and for Election of Board Members ... or for any matter that should go before the Community for a decision ??   Note the differences and the implication to how your HOA operates and what input and influence Homeowners can have over the Board under each method.   If this was about any “election” for your town or state Officials, which would you want ??    Call your Legislators (who were elected by BALLOTS) and ask them for HOA Legislation that requires ALL HOAs to conduct all voting and to make all decisions that affect the Community to be done by Homeowner Ballot ... ONLY !
